A day off?

Well this day off was not planned, and honestly I would rater be at work. I'm home with a sick little boy. I feel bad for leaving my colleagues hanging, and having to work extra. But my parents in law are on vacation in Thailand, so we were left without a babysitter.

Even if it's cold we don't need blankets etc. because I got my own personal heater sitting next to me surfing youtube for Cars and Mickey Mouse. This gives me a chance to explore my new instagram account. I got it when I received my ornament swap partner, her name is Daniele Hamilton, and since she had no blog, I had to look her up on Instagram. I don't know if you can find people without an account, but I couldn't figure that out, so I created one instead. So now you can follow me in instagram under conniedahlchristensen. 

So far not much is happening there, I'm just lokning around, or should I day stalking people:) so far I have found a few bloggers, but please let me know where to find you, so I can stalking you too:)

Okay I will get back to fever boy, he wants to watch something else, and needs help. Have a nice weekend.

A finished project - and just in time

This spring or early summer I realised a friend of ours were turning 50 in the end of November. She had asked at one point if I would make her a blanket, because she really like the one I had on the couch. I said sure, just buy the yarn and I will make it. So far she hasn't bought yarn, but I have...
And now I have finished the blanket, that she will have for her birthday. I figured that would be a great gift, and I would have a project to do. Though I have to remind myself never to make hexagons again, squares are so much easier to sew together in the end.
Though I'm really happy about the result, and hopefully she will be too:)

A weekend of birthdays

On Thursday my brother turned 40. I called to wish him a Happy Birthday, and asked where our invitation was. He said that our mum had said that I was working, so he figured it was no use inviting us, to which I replied it wasn't until the weekend I was working. So we had to find a date later on for us to celebrate his birthday.
Little did he know, and on Friday afternoon we went to a bar close to his home. Some of he colleagues had arranged a surprise party for him. It was the best, he had no clue, and he was speechless when he arrived. He had even complained to one of his colleagues that "My sister isn't coming for my birthday, she is always working!" We stayed at the bar for a few hours, and then all of us went out for dinner. I was a really nice afternoon/evening.
Saturday night I was at another 40th birthday party, for a friend of mine, she was having an all girls party, and we had a fab time. But I so tired yesterday, and unfortunately I had to work at 1 pm till 10 pm.
I have today of, and I had considered keeping Jonas home, but I figured I could use a little alone time, get a few things done around the house, and I have to be home because there is suppose to come a guy and fix our Internet, since it is not always running too great. So I figured Jonas would have more fun with his friends in daycare.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Ornament Swap

A few years ago I joined in on Micaela's annual Ornament Swap, I really loved it, but for some reason the last couple of years I haven't joined in on the fun. This year Micaela is expecting her second daughter right around Christmas time, and we all know how motherhood will keep you busy, so she asked the sweet Erin to host it instead. 

This year I'm joining in on the fun, and you can to, just head over to Pugh's News and see how to join. I can't wait to see who I will be paired with this year:)

My vacation is over...

I can't believe I just spent a week of my vacation time, and I haven't really done much. Well Jonas and I have been hanging out playing with his cars, trains and watching Disney Junior. 

On Monday there was a storm around, and several times I looked out in the backyard fearing the our trampoline would fly away, I knew it was secured, but every once in a while I couldn't help thinking okay now it's flying... so today we took it down, because I woke up during the night hearing the wind, and couldn't fall asleep again because I kept worrying about the trampoline... so hopefully now I will get more sleep:)

My parents came to visit on Wednesday, and on Thursday my mum and I drove to Århus (a big city about 2 hours away) to do some Christmas shopping. My mum pretty much finished her Christmas shopping, and I got some of mine done, but still have some left that I couldn't or wouldn't buy there in case they needed to be exchanged.

On Friday we were all attending my father in law's 70 birthday, he had a big party, and Jonas was entertaining everyone there. Otherwise it's been a very relaxing week. Several times I figured I would blog, but it's easier to do when Jonas is sleeping, so when he was napping I was thinking I will do it tonight when he is in bed, and when he was in bed I figured I would do it tomorrow when he is napping.... 

We will end the weekend and my vacation with dinner at my parents in law since my mother in law has her birthday tomorrow. Hope you all had a nice weekend.
